Course content

The Management School is pursuing original, high quality research that contributes positively to the live economy.

Subject Overview

Our many direct links with business, government and other organisations ensure our teaching and research remain relevant to today's – and tomorrow's – needs.

We also undertake a great deal of 'blue sky' research, much of which informs our undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.

All research conforms to high international standards and we have the following academic subject groups forming the basis for our research work:-

  • Economics and Economic Development
  • Finance and Accounting
  • Marketing and Services Management
  • Operations and e-Business
  • Organisational Learning
  • Behaviour and Change
  • Strategy, Organisation and Policy

Much of what we do is interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary, so there are plenty of informal clusters and networks within our lively community of research students.
